The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction published Education Forward to guide school districts as they prepare for the 2020-21 school year.

See the Education Forward plan here.

The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) has released guidance to help children return to organized athletics this summer. Similar to the North Shore’s phased reopening plan, the WIAA guidance slowly ramps up participation in athletics to maintain the safety and health of all those involved. 

You can access the link to the guidance here.


The Department of Health Services recommends that schools cancel or postpone all in-person ceremonies for spring and summer graduations. Public gatherings such as traditional graduation ceremonies are not advised until the state has met benchmarks articulated in the state’s Badger Bounce Back plan and the state determines that it is safe to do so.
